When Will I Ever Listen?!?!?!

My recent disappearance from blogging is mostly because of my friends.

I LOVE books. With our recent "home improvements" I have had to pack everything we own away, including all my books. As I have been unpacking, I have been going through, sorting, and purging all our belongings. Since I'm a little OCD in this area, I have been cataloging all of my books (900+ to date) and have nothing to read. At least nothing I can find.

As I was with Miss Marfa at a local bookstore, she pointed out the "Twilight" series. All she had to say was "vampire" and I was in!! Once I starting reading all of my friends blogs who have read this series, I was hooked.

I love these books!!! I would highly recommend them. But I do have one question, when I bought the books, the guy at the bookstore said something about missing car antennas. I still have no idea what he was referring to and I have read all four books.

Once these were read and put away for safe keeping, I was once again faced with what to read. I happened to be in Target and passed the book section (was that planned, I think not!) and saw a book that was recommended by Dodi in May. I didn't really think anything about the book then, since I was well equipped with books at the time. So now I'm looking for things to read, I figured, what the heck.

I bought the book, entitled "Such A Pretty Fat" by Jen Lancaster and thought I'd start reading it in my spare time. I had plenty of spare time in the car for untold hours so started reading.

All I can say is, I'll never be the same! I laughed until it hurt (really bad - a good bad of course). I am almost finished with it, because every time I pick it up, I can't get through it for the tears.

I so wish I had known so I could have met Jen with Dodi. So next time, Dodi, I'M IN!!! (And, I'll listen to your sage advice!)

Hip, hip, hooray!!!

I did it! I guess I'm just blog impaired. I now know how to manipulate the blog gods!!

On Strike or Captive Somewhere?????

Yes, I'm out of town and have had limited (or no) access to DH's computer. The only reason I am able to post this is because I have commandeered it for a few minutes.

I have also be obsessed with the "Twilight" series and have been reading like a fiend.

Oh no, the warden is out of the shower, will write more later!!!!

P.S. Still upset about the cute background, will try more when the brats are in school next week!
